Unless you have an ace (and I don't see a badge), there is a place to report these "close encounters". Nice round and better luck next time 😊.

Oh thank you! I was looking for that but could not find it!

Well I've been quiet for a while. This was the first time I've touched my clubs in over 2 months. So I had no expectations heading right to the course with no practice. Of course I watch of a lot of online tutorial videos since I haven't been able to play. It could be good I forget some bad habits or it could be bad I have some of these video tips in my head. One I took to the course was a a tip for consistent ball position at setup.

I played my home track (69.7/119) from the gold tees which plays a little under 6400 yds. It's a deceiving course even though there isn't much sand, the course is well protected by sawgrass. Greens are well protected on both sides and long. So if you're not in play, it's easy to rack up the strokes.

.Shot 45/42 tying my personal best 87 with only one triple, 2 doubles, 8 bogeys and 7 pars/GIRs. That was with 6 penalties and even missed a couple 3-5 foot birdie putts. I will say I hit a lot more pure shots than bad shots with woods/irons.

Hit more fades on the range as I implemented my new setup routine (usually more draw biased). Get out on the course, aim to play the fade and wind up hitting the draw. Setup more anticipating my draw and hit the fade. So played a lot on the edge of the fairways/rough. Hit a few 280 bombs with best drive hitting 300 yds (flat course not downhill) but 4 of my penalties were off the tee having no good sense of what ball flight I'd hit. Only missed 1 par 3 green which is a PB. My biggest struggle was wedges 50-100yd out, was thinking too much about setup and the ball position most often catching it thin in this range. Chipping recovery was on fire having 3 chips stopping within a foot of the hole for a one putt (33 putts total). So overall had fun and really happy with the outcome after the 2 month hiatus!! I just hope it's not another few months before I can get out again.

Let's see, it went like...

  1. not so good
  2. kinda ok
  3. not so good
  4. ok-ish
  5. not so good
  6. ok enough after a sliced tee shot
  7. ok after a mulligan/do-over
  8. almost good .. this is a Par 5 I've been inching closer to making a par on .. really good tee shot down the middle; good enough 2nd to get into position for an approach; approach landed front-middle of green with back-middle pin; first long uphill putt was online but left a little too short .. 2nd putt pulled it a hair and missed on the high side .. 6 inch tap in bogey...
  9. complete meltdown disaster blow-up 🤷‍♂️

So yeah your regular up and down golf day! 🤣

Par double double but, just practice didn't get a card. Hit a few good shots trying to copy Cam Smith and others who have the front foot pointed to 10 o'clock with a slightly strong grips? Hitting straighter if I don't drop kick lol, so good practice I think...

Absolutely cursed round today. Couldn't for the life of me string good shots together. Either a poor tee shot and decent second, or absolutely smash one and yank my approach left. Also had a couple of drives that ended up way worse than they should've -- smoke one down the middle and end up with a downhill, ball below feet lie kind of day. Making excuses, as that's what happens sometimes, but today just felt extra rude.

Like dunking one from 80y, only for it to rocket to the left into the greenside bunker. You can see where the ball entered the cup:


On the bright side, I got to test the new ProVs, and I kinda prefer the regular V1 where I normally play the X. Excited to test them more.

You are too young to remember, but...

@Rickp  Did the PXG survive FedEX?  Does it like Florida?

Inquiring minds...   😃

used it twice, shorter than my Titleist driver by a lot.  Will need to play with loft setting.  I think it’s afraid of Gators😜

Sorry.  Not sure if the setting will do much good.  My wife got the same driver and it was shorter than her old TM RBZ Stage 2... same loft.  She sent it back. Since I had the Callaway Epic Max, I ordered her the Epic Speed driver from CPO.  We spent some time on the range swapping heads; put the Epic Max on her 40g shaft and I put her Epic Speed on my 50g shaft.  We both decided that we'll stick with our originals.  She's doing well with the Speed.  I'm curious if the Rogue ST is any better than my Epic.

On Sunday morning, after 9 holes, it wasn't hard to determine that I didn't have my best stuff.  So rather than concentrate on score, I decided to work on my short game.  I am a follower of Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible, but I have never been comfortable with the half swing or 7:30 position.  Three quarter or 9:00 position shots are my favorite.  My setup for chipping short pitches is upright with club, grip pointing above my belly button, heal of the club slightly up, and choked down on the grip.  I began experimenting with 1/2 swings in my chipping setup and dialed in approximately 40 yards for my LW, approximately 50 yards with SW, and approximately 60 yards with my GW.  These distances fit in perfectly with my 3/4 quarter LW at approximately 60 yards.  Prior to figuring this out, it was always a feel shot under 60 yards.  So my not so good, full swing ball striking day turned out to be a positive.
